Subject areas

Readings and listenings by subject areas. The Listening Phase. Interactive Phase - Sample prompts Int/Adv. As part of the GESE examinations at Intermediate stage (Grades 7-9) and Advanced stage (Grades 10-12), candidates complete ‘the Interactive phase’.

Interactive Phase - Sample prompts Int/Adv

Examiners initiate the phase by reading out a prompt. It is then the candidate’s responsibility to ask questions and make comments in order to develop and maintain a conversation based on the initial prompt. At the Intermediate stage, the emphasis is on the candidate demonstrating use of the language functions of the grade. At the Advanced stage, in addition to expressing the language functions of the grade, candidates are expected to demonstrate control of grammatical items of the grade. For practice, you can download sample prompts for each grade by clicking on the links below. The Topic Form - Levels 4-6.

As part of the GESE examinations at Grades 4-6, candidates present and talk about a topic of their choice which they have had time to prepare before the examination takes place.

The Topic Form - Levels 4-6

Before their examination, Elementary candidates (Grades 4-6) must complete a ‘Topic form’ which they present to the examiner when they enter the examination room. The examiner uses the information on the Topic form to help initiate and develop a discussion about the candidate’s chosen topic area. It is designed to encourage spontaneous discussion which does not rely on memorised recitation. N.B NO Topic Form is required for Grades 7-12Important information – New Topic forms The GESE Topic forms have been redesigned as mind maps. You can find examples of completed topic forms in the GESE Exam Information booklet. Grades preparation. GESE Syllabus. GREAT!!! GESE Lesson plans. Sample videos 2010-2013.

    It has the same information in the syllabus they send to schools. I would like to find extra resourses for the interactive phase, sample of prompts and listening phase. There aren´t any GESE lesson plans for the advanced stage!
